Course enrolments

Due to May bank holidays, and exams taking place in the gym and dance studio during the summer term, some course dates and class sessions may vary.

About our courses

  • Family learning courses are fun and informative sessions for children and their parents, adult family members or carers (up to two children per adult).
  • Some courses are for parents and carers only.
  • Courses are designed to develop your own skills and knowledge, while guiding you to support and encourage your child’s development and love of learning
  • The courses take place in our centres, schools, children’s centres and community centres across the borough.
  • There are new courses this year focusing on parenting and wellbeing.
  • All family learning courses have a small enrolment fee payable when you enrol, but you may be entitled to join for free if you receive benefits or are on a low income. If you are eligible please email your telephone number and photographic evidence to adultlearning@lewisham.gov.uk and someone will contact you to complete your enrolment.
